A word from Jenny, the 'Skeleton' costume creator:
I am wearing my costume, it is an (almost) completely anatomically correct skeleton, I couldn't fit in some of the ribs that only show on the back, I have just always loved the way skeletons and skulls and bones have looked. I used black and white acrylic paint and near 40 reference pictures to paint the bones with proper correspondence to my bones onto a pair of black pants, a black t-shirt, black fingerless gloves, and black socks. I paintedmy face using assorted eyeshadows and white grease paint. I used black and white colored hair spray to paint my arms, and did my fingertips also in the acrylic paint. My hair is blacked out with the colored hair spray. I put about 48 hours of work into my costume.
